The Nachiyar Kovil Temple

The “Nachiyar Kovil” is a unique Divyadesam temple in Tamilnadu where Goddess Lakshmi is given more prominence over Lord Vishnu. Goddess Lakshmi is worshipped as ‘Nachiyar’ in this temple. It is believed that Lord Vishnu Himself gave ‘Pancha Samskara’ (religious initiation) to Saint Thirumangai Azhwar at the place where this temple now exists! Also, ‘Kal Garuda’, an image of Lord Vishnu’s mount Garuda, is the most prominent feature of this temple.

A little bit of fear is normal; in fact, like salt in the food, it is needed in order to remain disciplined, focused and dynamic.
